What the heck? The new E-PL5 beats the Sony NEX-5R in Jpeg Dynamic Range!

Last week our polish friends at M43.eu (Translation here) stated that the E-PL5 image quality at low ISO even beats the current [shoplink 29074]Olympus E-M5[/shoplink]. Now we have a second test supporting the results from m43.eu. Techradar (Click here) published the full E-PL5 Noise and Dynamic Range test. In RAW the E-PL5 manages to be on par with the new Sony NEX-5R in terms of noise and dynamic range. And that is already a superb result considering the sensor size difference. But it goes even further. The Olympus JPEG engine even manages to squeeze out a better Dynamic Range than the NEX-5R JPEG engine!
I am really surprised to see such a result. Almost think that both did a mistake while doing these tests! Possible that Olympus now catched up with that what is known to be one of the best (if not the best) APS-C sensor?
